Discover Exciting Internships in GIS and IT Field Support at Solano County

Posted on May 3, 2024

Are you interested in technology and looking for a great place to learn more about it? Solano County’s Department of Information Technology has two special Internship opportunities open to anyone, starting this June. These jobs are in two areas: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and IT Field Support. Plus, you get paid while you learn and work!

What is GIS?

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a way to collect, keep, and study data that helps us understand where things are. Imagine a map that not only shows places but also tells you lots of information about those places. GIS helps us make smart choices by showing us patterns and links between different things on a map.
